Kelly A. Wiener has accepted a position on the executive board of directors of the Kids Cancer Foundation.
Wiener graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree and earned a juris doctor in 1996 from St. Thomas School of Law in Miami. After being admitted to Florida Bar following graduation, she worked with a legal advocacy group in Miami where she fought for children’s rights through legislation.
The majority of Wiener’s legal career has been spent providing legal assistance to the indigent in the areas of family law, child custody, domestic violence and the Children’s Advocacy Project. In addition to her legal background, Wiener has owned and operated a fitness facility that focused on health, nutrition and building self esteem in children.
Wiener also owns Palms Stables, a farm that offers horseback riding lessons, training and boarding in Wellington’s equestrian community. Palms Stables is a family friendly hunter/jumper facility designed with the goal of providing a barn to horse lovers of all ages with a fun and comfortable learning atmosphere in which to help both new and seasoned riders fine-tune their equestrian skills. Wiener believes children must be provided with a non-stress, hands-on learning environment while still emphasizing competitiveness.
Before her appointment to the board of directors Wiener sat on the Kids Cancer Foundation’s advisory council.
She has been married to husband Michael for 17 years. They have two children, J.D., 13, and Carson, 10.
